easiest way to check front struts...

Hey everyone! My 92 300E is in need of new rear shocks, and I was wondering what the easiest method was to check the front struts. I checked the cd manual, and all methods require removing the strut from the car. The rear was checked using A.)visual identifcation of leaking fluid and B.)the old fashioned push on the back and watch how many times the car bounces before stopping. Is there a similar method to evaluate the front struts? The reason I am concerned is that the car makes funny hissing noises when it passes over speedbumps (when the front end passes over the bump), and it has been riding like a caddy recently....
